MISTER TRADER is a horse I have been keeping a close eye on ever since his second to Caravaggio last year. He was only beaten two lengths and was over five lengths ahead of Roly Poly.
He hasn't lived up to that form this year but I think it's a big positive that Leigh Roche comes over for the ride at Ascot today. On ratings Mister Trader only has 5lb to find on favourite Waady.
He has been given two big breaks from racing recently which isn't a good sign but with ground to suit and a jockey who clearly gets on well with the horse back on, I just keep getting back to how massive a price he is.
It was a Friday to forget after Tribute Act was beaten a nose and the other two could have been ridden better. October is now 1.5pts down, well done all winners and good luck Saturday.
